the fbi reporting that in 2010, hate crimes against muslims jumped by 50%, at a time when anti immigrant, anti muslim rhetoric flooded. the rise of hate in america ought not to be an aftermath. oak creeks calls us to have a conversation about hate in america. our candidates, we should watch how they campaign and what they promise to protect this country. >> how we campaign is in part how we'll govern, and the issue we talked about voter suppression, we ought to be able to agree on the health of our demonth mockracy, we want more people in our system. >> and our voices need to be heard. unfortunately, to get to your point about the partisan piece in in congress, issues like that don't come to the table any longer, you can't get a hearing. it's shut down. no discussion. oh, we can do a briefing, but we can't do a hearing, because the republicans control who gets to have a hearing what it will be about. >> we are calling upon the senate judiciary committee to hold a congressional hearing on the rise of hate in america. it's groups across the board. we hope this happens before the election.
